Teams looked evenly matched on paper and the first 30 minutes of the game saw both teams exchanging blows but unable to find the net. (A first minute goal by gow was waived off as it was deemed that the referee had yet to blow the kick off whistle.)
The deadlock was broken when whites gk Derian was caught off guard by a surprise midfield attempt by reds to open the scoring. Reds scored another to lead 2-0 and within minutes, whites came back with 2 of their own balancing the score at 2-2
Some sloppy back passing by yours truly allowed reds to capitalise with an easy chance taken sublimely by Daniel.
In the end, Final score was 4-2 to reds and not much to differentiate both sides as the teams were pretty balanced and the new faces adapted well with constant guidance by the respective capts. Kudos to Sean and Marcus for selecting the teams.
We used Kelvin's size 5 ball which indeed was much more enjoyable to kick about with.
